We can find on page https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/TargetsEvaluation that several chipset can make a device a bad target for Replicant.

For Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, page https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_core_prime-6716.php informs that Samsung Galaxy Core Prime include a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410.
The page about bad targets (https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/TargetsEvaluation) informs that

Qualcomm MSM/QSD devices are known to have bad hardware design where the modem controls GPS, audio (including mic), RAM, NAND.
However, some MSM/QSD SoCs do not ship with a modem embedded, so they may be good targets.

I understand this chipset embed a cellular modem (https://www.qualcomm.com/products/snapdragon/processors/410) so I understand that this device is a bad target.

For ZTE Z768G, I found from page https://www.gsmarena.com/zte_warp-4313.php that it is based on a chipset Qualcomm MSM8655 Snapdragon S2 which embed a modem (https://www.qualcomm.com/documents/snapdragon-s3-s2-s1-processor-product-specs).

Could someone confirm these information ?
If so, we could add Samsung Galaxy Core Prime and ZTE Z768G to bad targets page.
